Happy Diwali - Besan Ladoo

May the lights of this Diwali bless your family with success, happiness and prosperity. We Wish all our readers Happy Diwali.

Prep Time: 1 hour
Besan Flour/Gram Flour: 1 cup
Semolina(Rava): 1 tablespoon optional
Sugar: 1/2 cup or more (to your taste)
Ghee: 1/3 cup + lil more on your palms while making the ladoos
Cardamom powder: 1 teaspoon
Nuts(Slivered almonds): optional

In a flat pan on slow -medium heat, dry roast the besan/gram flour for about 30 to 40 mins. The best indication is when you start to get a nice fragrance of the besan and it starts to slightly change colour. Then add the ghee and keep roasting for some more time making sure there are no lumps formed. Add the rava and roast. Meanwhile powder the cardamom seeds and sugar to a fine powder. Turn off the gas. While continuously stirring add the powdered sugar mix to the besan. 
When this mix is of bearable warmth, apply little ghee onto your palms and roll them into small/medium sized balls. Besan ladoos are ready. 

Store them in an airtight container and they will last for a few weeks.  Once again we wish you all a safe Diwali.
